Teresa Giudice Says She’s the Reason RHONJ Gets Better Every Season

Teresa Giudice has an abundance of what every iconic Real Housewife needs and that’s confidence. You don’t necessarily have to be smart, kind, or married to appear on Bravo’s most famous franchise – but it helps if you think you’re the best thing in the world.

Other legends have the same value and that’s why they lasted so long. Ramona Singer, confident. Vicki Gunvalson, confident enough to give the network an ultimatum. Also, both of them were fired. Then we have our beloved Tre. According to the OG, there is only one reason why Real Housewives of New Jersey continues to improve each season – and that reason is herself.

The Teresa Show

Today I learned RHONJ gets better every season. I was unaware the same fighting by people year after year was the formula for a successful program. But that’s what Tre says, so it must be true! The ladies hit BravoCon in Las Vegas and PRIDE caught up with Teresa ahead of the highly-anticipated Season 14.

Unfortunately, Tre hasn’t mended fences with Joe and Melissa Gorga. The couple appears to be fine with it, for now, but Joe wants to be with his sissy at his core and the fandom should support family unity. Because of the great divide, the next season will look a bit different.

“It’s going to be a very interesting season. Sometimes I don’t ever think it’s going to get better and I think it does, unfortunately,” Teresa shared. I wonder if “better” is the proper word to use considering fans have been exhausted for about three seasons straight of the Gorga/Giudice feud. The streets have also been saying RHONJ needs a full reboot because it’s become so mundane. But if Tre says “better” we’ll go with it.

ME, ME, ME …

And in typical Teresa fashion, she added, “Of course, it always has to be because of me.” The reality of that statement is this woman has given her life to television. She’s had children on this show. Tre and Joe Giudice lived outside of the boundaries of their wallet and went to jail on RHONJ. And she’s gotten divorced and married with the cameras rolling.

That said, Season 13 had a ratings increase due to Teresa’s family dynamic, not because of an individual – hence having an ensemble cast. Sources have stated Season 14 has basically been filmed between Team Giudice and Team Gorga. It will be a good indication if Teresa is actually able to hold her own. Stay tuned.

Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 will return to Bravo in 2024.
